Are your Cub Scouts thinking about baseball season already? The baseball players in your pack can earn the Baseball pin from the Cub Scout Academics and Sports program. If they play on a organized team they have probably already done many of the requirements.
Play Ball is one of the Cub Scout program themes for the core value of Honesty. Here is what the program helps say about this theme:
“It is easy to forget how important it is to be honest when one is playing a game and really wanting to win; however, a Cub Scout is a person who always tells the truth and is worthy of trust. This month we reinforce how important it is to be honest, especially when playing baseball with friends.”
Scouting and sports go together. Many recognitions require that the Scout discuss sportsmanship. So what does good sportsmanship mean?
It’s baseball season. If you are doing a sports theme with your Cub Scouts, why not make some baseball cookies?
With baseball season right around the corner, let your Cub Scouts make their own trading cards with “Cub Scout stats”. This Cub Scout craft works great with any sports themed den or pack meeting.
The Cub Scout Academics and Sports program lets Cub Scouts at all levels receive recognition for whatever their special interests are. Look at the baseball belt loop this month. If your Cubs are on a baseball team, they have probably almost earned this award.
